Bristol Lulsgate hold periodic GA Forum meetings and it was suggested during one of these sessions that during quiet periods they may be able to reduce the price for landing + ATIS.

A trial has been agreed and I received this from BRS the other day... I have added the emboldening to the text

In order to better utilise quieter air traffic periods and provide a more efficient service to the general aviation community in the Bristol Airport region the Airport authority will be trialling reduced cost flying periods during the month of July. If this trial is successful it is hoped these periods of reduced cost flying can be introduced on a more permanent or frequent basis. The trial will be open to all operators of aircraft up to a weight of 2730Kg.
The reduced costs will be applied to all aircraft of a qualifying weight whether Bristol based or not.
A discount rate of £16 per Tonne will be charged during the specified times, this rate includes runway and ATC charges, any discounted rates normally applied to aircraft using BRS will not be applied during these flying periods.
To qualify for the discounted rates flights must take place during the specified periods, where a landing or departure occurs outside of these times full charges will be applied.
Parking at the Airport, for Aircraft that are non Bristol based, will need prior permission from the ground handling agent, Bristol and Wessex aeroplane club, the club will also issue a briefing for visiting pilots.
Discounted flying periods are detailed below.
Saturday
0930-1045
1400-1600
Sunday
0830-1100
1430-1600

2015 Update :-

Fees were frozen or have risen in-line with inflation.

With the exception of:
+ St Marys. Airport fees significantly reduced
+ Birmingham. Blue City has significantly reduced handling fees
- Newcastle. Samson increased handling to £40
- Glasgow. Signature increased handling to £160
- Belfast. AVflight took over from Eurojet. Minimum handling fee increased to £100.
- Manchester. Landmark increased handling to £253 due to £53 mandatory security levy

Stansted entry is technically incorrect as the £461.57 total cannot be achieved. Inflite (cheapest handling fee I think) park you in their own are and charge you at their own rates so "first 24h free" from STN Conditions of Use does not apply. So, if you leave the aircraft for 18 hours, it's £120 for their handling + £90 for parking (18/24 of £120). Universal aviation wins hands down with their fee of £190 and nil parking fees on the first night, but still dearer than £461.57.

I know the list is being updated and numbers will change anyway - but in case the same error is about to creep in for 2015, please have a closer look.
